TablePlus Alternative for Linux, Windows, and MacOS

Beekeeper Studio provides full feature parity across all operating systems. Linux and Windows are a priority, not an afterthought.

Beekeeper Studio is a modern, and performant database GUI that supports Postgres, MySQL, SQL Server and many more, and has full feature parity across MacOS, Linux, and Windows.

The table view is so fast compared to other products in the market (TablePlus for example has a really laggy experience in Windows) and it’s definitely a reason to use it, it feels so smooth. - Rodrigo

Cross-OS Feature Parity

Like TablePlus, Beekeeper Studio prioritizes user experience over useless features and thousands of buttons. Unlike TablePlus, Beekeeper has full feature-parity across all three operating systems (Windows, Linux, and MacOS).

We routinely use all three operating systems ourselves, so we care a lot about making sure the app feels at home everywhere.

Linux in particular is often overlooked, but not by Beekeeper Studio. Linux support is top tier.

Open Source Community Edition

The Beekeeper Studio team also maintains a fully open source and free Community Edition. If you are connecting to Postgres, MySQL, SQL Server, or SQLite, the community edition probably gives you everything you need. Beekeeper Studio is GPLv3 licensed, so it is a “real” open source project with an OSI approved license.

Beekeeper Studio started as an open source project, and it’s our priority to maintain a generous open source edition of the app. Everyone deserves good software. Check out the Beekeeper Studio mission.

When to use Beekeeper Studio vs TablePlus

Use TablePlus if you mostly work on MacOS, and don’t care about supporting open source.

Use Beekeeper Studio if you work across multiple OSes and want to support the open source ecosystem.

I use Beekeeper Studio because TablePlus for Linux lagged behind other OS versions, and was not the most feature complete - Jeff

😍 You'll Love Beekeeper Studio

I built Beekeeper Studio because I got fed up with overly complex database apps that I had to re-learn every time I used them. I wanted something fast and light that felt like VSCode or Sublime Text, but for SQL.

Spoiler: I couldn't find a good app that fit my criteria, so I built one. That's why Beekeeper Studio exists today.

🕶 Intuitive and easy to use

Beekeeper Studio is the only cross-platform database client with a fast, modern UI that feels like it was built this century. Beekeeper is designed to be fast, smooth, and user friendly in a way that most database apps are not.

Beekeeper Studio fits right in. I didn’t have to take hours to figure out how to properly use it, and it was a seamless addition to my toolkit - CS

🔌 Easily manage multiple connections

Beekeeper Studio supports a wide range of databases, such as SQLite, Postgres, and even Oracle. Easily identify different environments by color coding each connection, and the whole app will change to match when you connect.

Nice support for multiple environments (I label prod red, dev yellow, localhost green) - Chander

🐧 Cross-platform (for real)

Beekeeper Studio works the same on MacOS, Windows, and Linux. Like you, we tinker with all types of computers, so we want our software to be top-notch, even especially on Linux.

Beekeeper Studio has a consistent experience across OSes, and syncs my connections between computers and OSes. - Jeff

💄 Not just a pretty face

Ctrl/Cmd+P - quicksearch your database and saved queries

Beekeeper Studio may have a minimal, modern aesthetic, but it also packs a punch.

Whether you're looking to quickly and easily edit data, write SQL like a pro, create & modify tables, or even share queries with coworkers, Beekeeper Studio has you covered.

Beekeeper Studio’s attention to design (both visual and functionalities) helps ease the work - Long
